Re: Water damage from my skin

You need to open the phone housing and try to dry up or clean the board for any wet situation or moisture and check for any bad connection specially the connector from LCD display into the main circuit board. This connection is frequently loose in Motorola phone due to the flipping function is not reliable. I am surprise that since a flip phone which is mean it will open and close almost every minute for million time per month or year htne how come they made the connection so loudsy. I have fixed these problems for my relatives and friends and always see this common failure in Motorola Flip phone. Everytime you are no longer see the display but still heard sound and ring which is mean that either your cable is loosen or bad then you have to replace it. Please see below link for hoe to replace the LCD: I have an instruction of how to fix a water damaged phone but I have not been tried it before so you must read the instruction of water damaged guide carefully and make decision whether you want to do it. Please email me at so I can email you the link. I am at work so I cannot reach to my laptop hard drive to get the info. Try the link above to see how ot open the phone housing first then will try others later. Good Luck

Phone completely locked up except the off key motorola razr

I think you need to take it to a Motorola service center to get it flashed. If its just 3 months old, should be taken care of for free under your phone's warranty.

However, please note that most of the cellphone companies DO NOT cover moisture damage or accidental damage under their warranty conditions. You might need to pay for the services, if your phone became faulty after getting wet, or being dropped, etc.

Hope this helps.

Well, the white to pink dot is a sign of water in the phone. It is a moisture indicator and the first thing the repair fols look for so they can deny any claims.

They second thing is you can get an external battery charger for the razor. They run about 5 dollars and allow you to charge the battery seperate from the phone.

Moisture Indicator location question Samsung Gleam

Samsung's have 2 indicators now. One inside the battery compartment and one attached to the side of the battery.

The moisture indicator inside the battery compartment will turn pink if exposed to any moisture (including sweat, steam, etc.).

The moisture indicator attached to the battery will show up with pink/red + signs.

Hope this helps.

I am replacing mine right now so I can get a legitimate warranty problem handled.

Unlock code for Motorola RAZR V3

Or you ma be use your previous one assuming you could remove the moisture trapped inside the phone. In order to take out all moisture trapped in the phone: Dry the phone, battery, sim card, any accessory, etc. with cloth and wrap each piece, phone and accessories, in newspaper. Place a few handfuls of rice into a plastic bag and then place the wrapped phone in the bag with rice. The newspaper wrapping avoids direct contact of rice with your phone because the dust from the rice can get into the small areas of the phone. The newspaper and rice will absorb moisture. Leave it there (with the bag open) at least 24 hrs.

Phone won't turn on/charge

Kikimenor: Advise. If this is your 3rd RAZR V3, you must encourage Cingular (Now is the new AT&T) to replace your whole unit with another model. A friend of mine exchange his phone 4 times, until Cingular replace it. Motorola had too many problems with RAZR phones and that's why they launch quickly the SLVR L7. They still producing the RAZR, because users love the style and shape of the phone, but reality is that Motorola had several heavy issues with RAZR (Bluetooth, batt, microphone, etc.) If you're paying for an insurance on your unit, encourage them to replace it.

Yes, if it was dropped in water, most probably it would be dead. but moisture damage can also be local, damaging only a part of the phone, from air moisture, or a splash. Why won't they replace the phone under warranty? if it's only local moisture damage then it's damage from reasonable use. it's not your fault that it's designed to allow air moisture in. Have them replace the damn thing, don't worry about such things when you have a valid warranty. don't you? good luck
